Why join the PTA?

Membership in the PTA not only benefits your child but your school and community as well. You'll help create a positive and caring atmosphere in our school and your membership fees provide continued annual support through each of our events!

Join the PTA  


With your membership fees and donations, we can continue to PROMOTE STUDENTS, SUPPORT TEACHERS, AND BENEFIT OUR SCHOOL! 


All students benefit from PTA sponsored programs such as:

  • School-wide Air Purifiers

  • Book Fairs

  • Teacher & Staff Appreciation

  • Spring Fair

  • Variety Show

  • After School Enrichment

  • Recess & PE Equipment

How Much Should I Donate?

PTA Membership is $25 per family, but at an average annual cost of $125 per student, we have a few suggested amounts. Plus, the more each family donates, the less fundraisers we have to do! Think of it this way…

$50—No Bake Sales!

$100—No Saturday Morning Car Washes!

$150—No Selling Overpriced Merchandise!

$200—No Time to Volunteer (Though I Wish I Could!)

$_______— Thank you for not making me sell, buy, or do anything but complete this form!
